I don’t know about the folks on your Christmas shopping list, but my mother has to be one of the hardest people for me to shop for. Take a break from shopping (or keep procrastinating) at this talk taking place tomorrow night at RAOUL Textiles, 136 State St (opposite the train station). Maybe you’ll get some inspiration for that important lady on your shopping list!
Maternity: Mother & Child Imagery in African Arts
Thursday December 12, 2013, 7:30pm
Friends of Africa presents “MATERNITY: Mother and Child Imagery in the Arts of Africa,” a slide talk by Herbert M. (Skip) Cole.
Goddesses, Ancestors, Queens, Commoners, and Spirit Masks: “The Mothers” hold the secrets of the world, and its destiny. They are glorified and idealized, yet at times abused and at risk. Cole has written about this topic often, and it the subject of a book now in progress.
